Electrosteel decided to look for a new ERP system due to the obsolescence of their existing
software and hardware infrastructure. It was stifling their growth, so a competitive process
was run amongst three IT partners and Frontline were chosen.
Cristiano Coppola (Head of Commercial Operations) states: “We saw in Frontline a high level of competence and understanding of our requirements even before any decision was made on our part. This gave us tremendous confidence in Frontline. In other words, the combination
of knowledge and availability tipped the balance in favour of Frontline. Price was also competitive and played a significant part in the decision.
“Before and during the implementation project, we were very impressed by Frontline employees and in particular the Frontline project team that worked directly with us. Their help, competence and experience was fundamental for the successful completion of the implementation project. They also went out of their ways more often than not in helping our company through very difficult periods of the project. I firmly believe we could not have achieved so much without their stern support and availability.”
Key benefits Electrosteel achieved with SAP Business One:
- Faster access to information
